Creative Ways of Using Stained Glass
When you think of stained glass, what do you see? We usually picture churches, cathedrals and temples with large art glass windows depicting images of religious significance. We probably imagine that warm colored light that shines through on Sundays as we sit in the pews. Stained glass is an art form that has been around for centuries; the main use being windows. However, stained glass is an art that spans much farther and wider than just windows in houses of worship. Stained glass can enhance the beauty of a home, or even a business, in windows, hanging panels, transoms, cabinet doors, stepping stones and many more architectural and interior designs.
Stained glass windows are a great way to bring out the uniqueness and personality of your home. The glass itself varies in many colors, textures, and styles that will allow you a great amount of creativity in design. When the windows catch the sun, they bring out warmth and beauty making the room come alive. Having stained glass windows is akin to having fine paintings on the walls of your home. The artistry and liveliness that shine through is unparalleled.
Mosaic style designs used for outdoor stepping stones are an excellent way to instantly turn your patio, garden, backyard or any outdoor seating place into a gorgeous retreat. A theme can be created, giving homage to your favorite flowers, animals, country or to your family. Stained glass stepping stones incorporate lively colors and pattern to your outdoor relaxation or recreation area.
Suncatchers are like floating works of art that can be placed anywhere. Hanging in a sunroom is an excellent choice to bring out the colors in the design. They can be hung in windows, on porches, placed on a mantle or a bookcase. Suncatchers are an excellent way to bring the beauty and creativity of stained glass into your home without spending a lot of money, and they make the best gifts or stocking stuffers.
These are just a few of the ideas that encompass all that is the art of stained glass. So when you think of stained glass now, you can picture your home enhanced with the color, light, beauty and artistry that it can bring in a variety of ways.
